Beginning on Jan. 1, 2011, health reform requires health insurance companies to spend at least 80 to 85 percent of consumers’ premium dollars on medical care and quality improvement, instead of on profits and such overhead costs as executive compensation and advertising. insurance companies are required to pay rebates to consumers if they fail to meet that standard. These new requirements will hold the insurers accountable.
